Hi Guys,

I am unable to create a DCIM folder on my device. Somehow it was cleared or deleted and now i cannot create a new one. As a result the camera doesn't save any photos.

Any tips?

Thanks,
Sam

Camera should be creating it if it doesn't exist.. and I think it's also created when you flash a ROM :/

What do you mean you can't create it manually?

Sounds like something went wrong with your /sdcard or permissions.

Perhaps you could give us the full story?

Hello Sam

Go to /data/media/0 if you have root then create the DCMI folder there.

Reboot your phone after that.
